Has anybody considered raising bison as a food source? My group is looking into purchasing 6 calves and a mature bull and two mature females. We have 376 acres so space for foraging is not a problem.
Not worried about the aggression. Any animal can be dangerous if not treated with respect. A good friend of mine from college raises bison (you may have heard of his father.....his dad started CNN and is quite fond of bison)Bison are supposed to be VERY aggressive. As someone who's been around cows for all of my 33 years, I would not want to mess with them, but that's just my opinion. If you choose to do so, congrats to you, but remember, if you raise your own beef you can control what they eat.
